Notes

Notes:

- there is a considerable sonic change from D3T02 to D3T05. I've tried to polish this up a little, but it's still very prominent.
Seeing how this is the only aud circulating right now, I've opted not to patch with the soundboard.

- This is a great, full sounding pull of a historic show. Many thanks to Mark for capturing it and lending his masters to LMPP to get them out.

Tapers Notes

- Jaime built the mic mixer and we all taped from the free throw line on the floor at the Oakland Auditorium. The mic's went from the mixer into my Sony TC-D5M. There was also a patch bay, but I don't remember how many decks were plugged in. I went to 10 New Years runs / shows from 1977 to 1990 and the 1981 run was my favorite.

Subject: Great "Playin"!
Overall, a solid show, but the version of "Playin'" on this one gets the blue ribbon. About as jazzy as it gets for '81 (Kreutzmann summons '73-'74 mid-way through this monster jam). The rest of the show plain kicks ass. Lots of positive character to this AUD.

Wonderful show. Recording is quite good too. Set 2 seems a bit lesser in sonic quality especially toward the end. But still an excellent listen.
